Green Valley Church of Christ, Noblesville, Indiana, and North Park Community Church, Fort Wayne, Indiana, brought about 25 people to Urban Hope Philadelphia. They participated in homeless outreach, work projects, prayer walks, Mifflin Park outreach to children, and even took the subway to 30th street.
Here are comments from a few participants:
“As a minister it has opened my eyes to the lost in the cities. They are not unreachable but lost. They need forgiveness through the hand of God working in our lives to reach out and plant seeds of hope.”
“Through Urban Hope I was shown a new side of life. I realized how sheltered I was from drug use and rampant poverty. God touched my heart by showing me strong leaders that are bold for the case of Christ. I was shown that people are not scary, and even if they are, so what? They need to know about God.”
